About the Fundamentals of HV Protection Course

This high voltage training course is made for electrical/plant engineers, supervisors, technicians and electricians with responsibility for the application, commisioning and/or maintenance of electrical protective equipment used on high voltage electrical power systems.

Through a mix of practical exercises and classroom theory at our high voltage training centre, our tutors will provide you with detailed theoretical and practical instruction on both low voltage and high voltage equipment including primary and secondary injection and utilising electronic, microprocessor and electro-mechanical devices.

During the course, you will regularly interact with the equipment at our HV training centre. The setup is designed to simulate a realistic high voltage environment and you’ll be interacting with many different protective high voltage devices during the course including mechanical, electromechanical and microprocessor-based relays.

The following modules are covered as part of the HV Protection Fundamentals course:

  • Power System Protection
  • Fuse and MCCB Protection
  • Current and Voltage Transformers
  • Basic Fault Level Calculations
  • Calculation of Graded Time Settings
  • Current Transformer Magnetisation Curves
  • Primary Injection Testing
  • Classification and Function of Relays
  • Secondary Injection Testing
  • Transformer Protection
  • Motor Protection
  • Generator Protection
  • Feeder Protection
  • Bus Zone Protection
  • Trip Circuit Supervision Requirements
  • Useful Formulae

About the PASS High Voltage Training Centre

It is important for those who want to work with HV equipment to have the training needed to do safely and competently – the PASS HV training centre is designed to give you this experience.

Made specifically for HV professionals, the training centre uses real switchgear, relays, transformers and associated HV test equipment to give you real, practical experience of working with this equipment. Guided at all times by our highly experienced high voltage training professionals, you’ll learn both the theory behind your course in our comfortable classrooms and be out in the centre itself regularly interacting with the equipment.

Our centre is designed to provide an authentic simulation of HV conditions, but runs at an intrinsically safe 110V to ensure the safety of all those on the course during the training.

The PASS HV centre also houses a canteen for all trainees with free lunch and refreshments included throughout the day.
